Serial 1 Modifications / Re: Raising the handlebars
« Last post by Ryan on April 03, 2022, 02:38:04 PM »
I added new cruiser handlebars to my Serial1. It was a bit of work (with the help of my local bike mechanic), but I managed to replace both brake lines and move the controller outside the handlebars.

In essence, I bought 2 new brake lines, disconnected the control (power/speed device), fished the wire outside of the handlebars (you need to disconnect a purple connector first) then reconnected it outside the handlebars. There is plenty of cable to accomodate any handlebar. I then left the local mechanic to cut the wires and run the new lines externally (he tried to fish them but they have to exit under the light and needed more room than was available.  I don't mind the externally routed cables, and my back loves them now that I am sitting more upright. And now I can switch handlebars again if I choose, and do that myself.

I can supply all the parts list I used if anyone is interested.

Looks great Frank! Thanks for sharing.

Yeah I’d love some parts like an extra battery, need a front fender setup and the Serial 1 jersey in the video just enjoy the ride.

Almost a year later, I went back to the Harley dealer. This time they let me take off the stem cover and take a look.

As you can see from the attached photos, the front portion of the big square stem is the actual stem, and the rear portion is the top cap. You can easily remove the hex bolt and top cap. Underneath, you can see a standard 1 1/8" threadless stem, which also has a standard 31.8mm grip for handlebars.

So this is all standard stuff, and you can replace the stem and handlebar at will, right? Well, you could...except for the cables. It appears that the power/control cable(s) and the rear brake cable run just in front of the stem, protected by that big square cover. They go all the way to the front of the stem, and straight in to a hole in the handlebars. Worse, one cable (which I assume is for the front brake) goes straight up through the stem itself.

So to change anything, you'd at least have to bleed, disconnect, and unthread the hydraulic brake lines. And the power/control lines for the headlight and control pad. Then if you raise the handlebars, I suspect (?) the lines will no longer reach...so you'd have to replace them. You can buy a length of brake line, cut it to size, and run them outside the frame like most bikes, but I am less sure about replacing the lines to the headlight and control pad.

Mind you, at least it is possible! I am not at all sure that I want to take on this kind of headache, though.

Hey Serial 1 or Harley...... not sure if the bond is still there.
No one needs this bike; we want it. After having it for a while I'll say my luxury purchase was worth it. Love the bike and the way it was designed (Rush City-Speed in Black).
What we luxury buys also want is brand identity. Things like hats, shirts, merch......we want merch.
We also want to feel apart of Serial 1. Why is there no owner registration section where we put our serial numbers and purchase date on your data base?
Finally, we'd like to be able to purchase parts online. Batteries, charge covers, headlights.....and merch....how 'bout some merch.
Thoughts?

General Chat / Re: The floppy little charge port cover
« Last post by Pixmxr on January 31, 2022, 08:21:33 PM »
I find it easy to replace IF you do the following:
Gently align the round part of the charge cover with the round charge port first.
Then gently pull back on the top and insert the tab, followed by the upper left tab.
Then pull the bottom tap up and insert it into its tab slot.
The key is getting the round rubber into the round port jack. After that, it's just inserting the tabs into the slots.
Good luck, took me a minute to figure it out.
I'll be ordering a couple of rubber charge port covers for the future if Serial 1 ever gets an online parts department.

Wow that’s definitely a good deal.    Where did you learn that, you must have an inside contact.     The link just takes you to the buy now page for any of the bikes and of course they are not going to mention anything about saving a $1000 because people would wait until the 19th. 
I almost want another one.

They gave me a heads up on the deal so I thought I'd pass it along. If you do buy one I appreciate you using the link above!

I like everything about it except I think a small milk crate would fit the bike better. 
I see the current bid is up to $3900, probably not gonna get to the $14200 that the first 1 off Mosh got.
